An update to a study originally published in 2008. This new study (2012), titled "Selected Economic & Demographic Indicators in Particular Counties in the Barnett, Fayetteville and Marcellus Shale Play" is published by a consortia of colleges in northeastern Pennsylvania called the Institute for Public Policy and Economic Development. The data show the dramatic impact shale gas drilling has had in NE PA on employment and median income. It also shows counties where drilling does not happen have far less of an impact (no surprise there).
